PERU – A new candy store located in downtown Peru has a strong tie to Wabash County.
 
So Good Candies opened on Black Friday 2016, but the history of its sweet offerings date back 100 years.
 
Arnold’s Candies opened in 1917 and was purchased by Bob and Jane Haskett in 1960. The Hasketts retired in 1991, selling their recipes and cooking equipment for Wabash philanthropist Richard Ford.
